"Hunting ethics and conservation were really pioneered by Fred, who became a national advocate for both. Will, through his "100 Percent Fair Chase" slogan and equally well-known environmental and conservation concerns, is carrying on in Fred1s footsteps. We are delighted to have him with us for the next decade."
